Wolves are poised to sign goalkeeper Jose Sa from Olympiakos after Rui Patricio edged closer to joining Roma.
As first revealed by Sportsmail on June 9, Sa has been Wolves’ No1 choice ever since it became clear Patricio wanted to link up with Jose Mourinho in the Italian capital.
New Wolves boss Bruno Lage is a fan of his fellow Portuguese and is thought to have given his approval to the transfer.

Sa will come in to replace current Wolves No 1 Rui Patricio, who is close to joining Roma
Lage began work with his squad earlier this month, though a number have been granted extra time away after playing for their countries at Euro 2020.
Patricio is not the only key player who may leave this summer. Ruben Neves remains a target for Arsenal, while Adama Traore has still to sign a new deal and Porto are exploring the possibility of bringing back Joao Moutinho.
All three players are not due back at the Compton training base until later this month.

Wolves hope to bring in an athletic central midfielder and will monitor the progress of Raúl Jimenez during pre-season before deciding whether to reinforce in attack.
Jimenez has not played competitively since fracturing his skull in a league match at Arsenal last November, but should make his comeback during pre-season.
Wolves will travel to Spain for a week-long training camp later this month, during which they plan to face La Liga club Real Betis in a friendly.
